I can't reproduce the problem here -- Konqueror works fine. But that's 
no consolation for your trouble.

There could be several reasons for this:
1. Make sure the files kio_http.so and kio_http.la are in 
/opt/kde-3.3.1/lib/kde3 -- they should be, i just checked the 
pkgproto file for KDEkdelibs-331.
2. Makre sure you have the program /opt/kde-3.3.1/bin/kchmod installed 
setuid root
3. How much swap space do you have available ? You need at least 3 
times core RAM in swap. I would recommend to increase the swap 
partition to 2GB.

This is because i didnt build the kio_smb files for 3.3.1. I can build 
them an upload a patch tomorrow evening, that is no problem.

This should be more than fine -- this is what i have also for Solaris 

Please let me know. Konqueror and kio_http should work with no
